KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Kings Beach Public Library hosted local historians / authors Carol Van Etten and Eddy Ancinas for their second annual “Evening by the Creek.”
This annual event endeavors to provide the community an intimate gathering with local literary talent. The authors shared their vast knowledge of the fascinating history of North Lake Tahoe. Carol’s new book “Tahoe City’s First 100 years,” details the movers and shakers of Tahoe City’s creation and the generally unknown details of Tahoe City as it evolved into the town it is today.
Eddy’s book “Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows: Tales from Two Valleys” is a detailed chronology of the people and circumstances that shaped the making of the two unique ski resorts and the eventual joining of the two in 2011. The event drew history buffs and those looking for a relaxing evening by Griff Creek in Kings Beach.
